- Open Tournaments for hit titles such as NBA2K, Mobile Legends, and Tekken.
- And more, including Game Developer Booths, Technology Exhibitors, Influencer Fanmeets, and a Food Festival.
Several high-profile members of the enthusiasts media industry will be present to host educational panels, performances, and fanmeets. This includes top streamers and vloggers such as Riku, Gloco, CongTV, ThatsBella, RogerRaker and Asurai. World-class artists, cosplayers, and industry executives will also be in attendance to add further value to the event, such as Aeonix, Liui Aquino, LibrengKomiks, Overdrive Design’s Rd Rogacion, and Twitch’s Mark Candella.
